Rethinking OER and their Use : Open Education as Bildung

Markus Deimann, Robert Farrow, , eCOTOOL, Web Courseworks, Jul 05, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I agree with the authors' objectives, as they "argue that the beliefs and values associated with Bildung – including autonomy, critical reflection, inclusivity, and embracing the potential for self-development – are suitable for providing a theoretical framework for open education as well as providing a critical lens through which to assess contemporary models of education." But as with most 'literature' I think the selection of references is just loopy - Fini (2009) for the origin of MOOCs? Daniel (2012) for the term 'xMOOC'? Jenkins (2009) for 'participatory culture'?
